March Planning Meeting

Our next meeting is scheduled for Friday, March 28 at 1:00 pm at the Black Caddis Ranch B & B.

If anyone interested in becoming a Festival Sponsor or Firefly Friend please contact me at pafireflyfestival@gmail.com. We need funds to provide basic services to the visitors.  We want to keep this a FREE family-friendly event, so your support would be much appreciated.

Anyone interested in volunteering, exhibiting, performing or serving food should also contact us, so we can add you to our list.

The blog has a new refreshed look with more information about the fireflies and the festival.  Let us know what you think.

We have our blue flashlights ready for the festival thanks to Bill and John.  We will soon have this year's posters ready to distribute, and working on a brochure to put in the Visitors Center and Marienville Ranger Station.   We will soon have a new T-shirt design and will  keep you posted.

With just 4 months left, we are going to busy getting everything organized.  Did I mention we need sponsors and volunteers?  Let us know if you're interested.

First meeting, Saturday, January 25 at 3:00 pm at Black Caddis Ranch B & B

Our first meeting of the PA Firefly Festival Partnership is scheduled for next Saturday, January 25, 2014.  We will be discussing our new licensing of our name, and securing our Not-for-profit status. Anyone interested in planning the festivities for this year's Synchronous Firefly season is welcome to attend the meeting at the Black Caddis Ranch.  We have an inaugural board, but we need committee chairs to take on tasks such as food, t-shirts, vendors and music, etc.  June seems very far away, but we know from last year how fast the time goes.
